For £5k I'd be looking at Mondeo/Passat.

 

Heavy enough and stable towcars that are relatively economical and don't cost the earth to keep on the road.

Good ideas above. Maybe also Peugeot 408

 

If space isn't number 1 priority you might consider a BMW 3 series. A nice drive and we find rear wheel drive works well for a towcar.

 

I take it you have no specific need for AWD?

I would agree, for the money the Mondeo would be the best bet, plenty of parts available should you need them, good room  both inside the cabin and boot, good luck

I went for the Mondeo estate as they suited my lifestyle and the rear suspension was more substantial for towing, I'm very happy with mine :)

another vote for the mondeo great tow cars and drive well solo, any of the 2. 0 diesels will do you just fine.
